"I've never seen that Podracer before, and it sure looks pretty junky to me."
Ark Roose

The BT310 was a podracer produced by Balta-Trabaat and used around the time of the Invasion of Naboo. This racer was commonly referred to as the Quadra-Podracer due to its four turbine engines.

Characteristics

The BT410 rented by Ben Quadinaros for the Boonta Eve Classic.

The BT310's four large engines were connected via energy binders, and attached to the cockpit by quad-control cables. This model was known to be highly temperamental, and required constant upkeep. A fuel tank was located mid-way down each engine, and the vehicle could reach up to 940 kilometers per hour, although acceleration was slow.

History

Ben Quadinaros entered the Boonta Eve Classic of 32 BBY in his BT310 after he made a wager with Boles Roor, who bet the Toong would not have the courage to enter the race. Although the BT310's power coupling malfunctioned while it sat on the starting grid, resulting in the loss of all four engines during the second lap, Quadinaros won five million wupiupi from Roor—after all, he had turned up to the race, even if his racer had not made it past the grid.

During 1 ABY, when the Galactic Civil War was intensifying, a spacer aquired a podracer that looked very similar to the BT310. This podracer was believed to be a mere replica, but was coincidentally said to suffer from the very same technical faults as Ben Quadinaros' podracer.
